Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S226 Notebook

1 Answer

I thought I'd posted my question - which is that my keyboard of my laptop, Satellite - isn't working correctly, I press a key with the right hand and it just puts a \\\\ rows and rows of them...I've checked the help menu to see if anything there...even pressed the Function key with each of the 1-9 buttons on the v. top in case I'd changed something...but it didn't fix it. It happened once before and I ended up putting an external keyboard on, and it worked well, and then it seemed to fix itself, and then I took that keyboard off some weeks ago now...and now this again! Help

SOURCE: help

sounds like you have an intermittent problem with your AC adaptor or dc input jack. Does the light on the AC adaptor light up when you plug it in? If it does then your dc input jack may be faulty. If the light on the ac adaptor does not light then replace the ac adaptor. Good Luck!

The right hand keys do not work. the return key and back space key does not work all others work. is there a place to go to set up in the control pannel.

This isn't a setting problem, it's hardware - some of the connections inside the keyboard have failed and you must replace the entire keyboard with a new one.
Time for a visit to a repair shop.

Keyboard malfunction

Sounds like some water or other liquid got into the keyboard or could be that some keys are sticking. With the laptop turned off. Run your fingers thru all the keys going from left to right, up to down. This will ensure that if any keys are sticking that they will become unstuck.

Turn on the laptop and if you still have the problem then the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
